New Listening Feature!

Listening Party, the beta feature that we’ve been testing for the last several weeks, has proven to be a fun and often addictive way to hang out and chat with other musicians, while providing meaningful feedback and props to your fellow community members. After much positive feedback, we’ve incorporated this experience into Indaba Opportunities in a more central way. Now, when you arrive at the Opportunity page, you’ll automatically land on the Listen & Vote tab, where you can chat with other members currently online while everyone is listening to the same track AT THE SAME TIME!

Below this picture is a quick rundown of how it works…

Members Only
The new listening party feature is only available for logged in musician members and is meant for meaningful discussion amongst musicians, not just fan comments. It is a way for you to hang out with other musicians, talk about the music being created on Indaba, and vote for your favorite submissions (or skip them!).

Lottery
Every few minutes, there is a new lottery. When the lottery starts, you can throw your submission (or any submission in that opportunity that you have voted for) into the hat to be played next. The next song is chosen at random from all those submitted. If no one enters a particular lottery, a random track from the opportunity will play.

Skip
If something comes on that you can’t stand to listen to you can click the “Skip” button. If the majority of people currently listening agree with you and also press the “Skip” the next song in the queue will begin to play.

Whether you love this new feature or it makes your want to punch something, be sure to give us feedback here: http://feedback.indabamusic.com/.  It’s the best way to ensure your voice is heard here at Indaba! – See more at: http://feedback.indabamusic.com

    Needs work, tried to listen to five knives comp this way, it got all jumpy so I moved on to a different comp and five knives entries would start playing in the middle of the song I was listening to. Really annoying. As I am typing this another entry for five knives just started playing on it’s own. Really, really annoying.

    doesn’t work for me. Tracks don’t start to play. After restarting firefox the first track plays, then again after skipping the tracks no reaction in the player. Tracks don’t play.
    Firefox 22.0 on OS X 10.6.8, Shockwave Player 11.8

  5. Firefox 23. No tracks play in the Sarah Vaughn competition. No play button.
